Commotion marred the function of Owaisi here when the girl managed to reach the stage and started shouting slogans — ‘Hindustan Zindabad’ and ‘Pakistan Zindabad.’

She wanted to differentiate between ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ and ‘Hindustan Zindabad’ but organisers and cops on duty whisked her away.

Owaisi’s reaction

Owaisi himself rushed to take the mike from her. He was having a one-on-one with the public here.

Owaisi said: “I condemn this statement. The woman is not associated with us. Humare Liye Bharat Zindabad Tha, Zindabad Rahega.”
